Hasegawa Hikawamaru Ocean Liner - (Hikawa Maru), 1/700, E092-600

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


1/700 scale waterline kit. Very highly detailed and finely molded. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag including decals and instructions. The Hikawa Maru was one of a class of three Japanese ocean liners that were built for the Nippon Yusen KK line. She was launched in September 1929 from her builder, the Yokohama Dock Company. Her two sisters did not survive the war. Hikawa Maru served as a Hospital Ship in WWII, survived the war, and is restored today and can be visited in Japan - she is one if not the only existing very early 1930s ocean liner.

Aurora Convair 990 Jet Mainliner United Air Lines, 1/107, 397-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++


Very rare kit from 1962. First and only issue. This is the largest injection molded kit ever made of the very fast Convair 990 airliner. The box has as-new color and sheen with four solid corners and no repairs. There are no price tags, tape or price tag/tape marks. The only flaw is light edge wear. The model is molded in the correct white and clear plastic, with the large clear triangle display stand and full color United decals. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried 100% complete including all parts, decals and instructions. Decals and instructions are both flat with slight yellowing being the only flaw. NOTE: shipping insurance is required with this kit. The Convair 990 and its near sister 880 were very high performance airliners. Unfortunately they did not find favor with commercial operators. The commercial failure of the 990 caused Aurora to pull these molds from production shortly after the introduction of the kit. The 990 was a larger and faster (Mach .91) airliner than the 880, but it failed to meet it's range criteria for east to west crossings of the USA. As a result, only 37 were made. Interestingly enough, several 990s continued to be operated by private owners and NASA operated two for decades after the last one was phased out of commercial service. Only 65 880s were produced from 1959 to 1962. The aircraft was designed to be smaller and faster than the DC-8 and 707 - this market did not develop, however, and if it did it could have been served with less expensive designs.

Frog Bristol 175 Britannia 'The Whispering Giant' - BOAC Air Lines, 1/96, 350P

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+


Rare and even more so in this box condition. From the late 1950s. The box is in exceptional 'excellent+' condition with perfect color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs, no tears, tags, tape or marks from either. Very light general wear is the only flaw. Large 1/96 scale kit is molded in the correct gloss silver and clear. Large model with full landing gear and and two colorful BOAC decal sheets. One includes full size vertical stabilizer markings and the other is a very large and extensive sheet with all striping, logos, side windows, flags, registration for six different aircraft and more. The decals are 'very good' and flat except that one end on the long sheet that is always curled on these kits. The instructions are excellent also. The four props are still on the factory cardboard holder and have no broken blades. Molded in silver, clear. The kit has never been started. The actual airplane is inventoried 100% complete but NOTE: missing the display stand. With decals and instructions.

Imai Panzer IV -F2 - Sd.Kfz.161 Panzerkampfwagen IV For Remote Control, 1/15, 519

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good


Very rare, early issue with glossy artwork. Giant scale (1/15), fully motorized tank model intended for R/C operation. Features three motors, all in the original Mabuchi boxes- two RE-56 size drivers with independent, all-metal gear boxes (one for each track), one Mabuchi TKK 25 size with an all metal gear box for turret rotation, an amazing hardware kit with metal motor mounts, three all metal gear boxes, brass gear, brass pre-wired and soldered battery contacts, full set of pre-wired switches and prewired 7 pin plug and socket set, all machine screws and nuts, very realistic individual track links, full crew, opening crew and rear engine hatches and more. Never started. All the internal presentation cardboard is present and 'excellent.' Almost all parts are still in the factory sealed bags. The few that were not sealed are inventoried complete. With decals and instructions. Please note, the box displays better than the 'good' grade but is graded as such because there is some masking tape on the sides and on split corners. Although the kit is designed for R/C operation, Imai did not include the R/C equipment. The builder will need to furnish that. NOTE: I have done my best to account for the hardware, but it is all still factory sealed, making an accurate count impossible. In a worst case scenario it may be missing a few common nuts or bolts.

Sterling Luscombe Sedan - 21 Inch Wingspan Flying Aircraft, Peanut, K-3

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG++


Still factory sealed. A well engineered, highly prefabricated model featuring all die-cut quality balsa parts, a large number of completely formed parts including fuselage sides, top and bottom, wing sheet covers, tail feathers, etc, finished wheels, plastic cowl & prop, rubber motor, hardware set, clear window material, colored tissue, color decals, full size plan and separate teaching instructions sheet. All eyes were set on the great 'Air Age' that was promised after World War II. "An aircraft in every garage" was considered the next thing and there were few if any naysayers. One Luscombe entry into the promised age for the four place family aircraft was the 1948 Sedan. Designed for simplicity, reliability and economy, the Sedan did all three very well. Crusing speed was 130 mph at 1850 RPM with a top speed of 150 mph. She landed at 60 mph and weighed 2,280 lbs. Range with a pilot, 600 pounds of people or cargo was over 500 miles.

Academy Boeing B-47B / B-47E / RB-47H Stratojet - 306th Bomb Wing (M) MacDill AFB Fl 1954 / MacDill Early 50s / March AFB CA 1959 / MacDill Early 53 / Yokuta Japan 1965 / Yokuta 1954 / RAF Upper Heyford 1967, 1/144, 12618

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM


Very nicely molded kit featuring optional parts for B, E and RB Recon variants, all fine recessed panel lines, good cockpit and gear well detail, full landing gear, wing drop tanks and decals for 11 different aircraft total. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The B-47 was a very advanced aircraft at the time. The XB-47 first flew in 1947. The big jet's speed was equal to or greater than all current fighter aircraft, so it received radar-controlled twin 20mm cannons in the tail as the only guns. Through the use mid-air refueling, the B-47 gave SAC it's first all-jet force for nuclear or regular bomb delivery. Although it was tricky to fly, Stratojets flew into the mid 1960s. A program to strengthen the wings for low-level attack was responsible for prolonging the service life.

Strombecker Cessna T-37A Tweet - USAF Jet Primary Trainer, 1/48, D33-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


From the mid 1950s. Strombecker was very well known for producing the finest pre-carved hardwood aircraft and missile kits, but they had a very short journey into the plastic model field. They made a total of 5 molds for plastic injected aircraft kits, the 1956 Sea Dart being the first. All were discontinued in the mid 1960s. One kit was this T-37A, which after Strombecker's demise, was issued as an Aurora kit. This is a very nice kit for that time with operating landing gear, dive brakes and canopy, as well as 'good' cockpit detail and instruction and student pilot figures. Includes very colorful and extensive decals in 'excellent' condition and full instructions with two photos of the completed model and one photo of the real aircraft, exploded parts diagram and very nicely illustrated building steps. Molded in silver and clear. Never started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing one part, the hinge frame for the canopy. Can be built without this part (Aurora eliminated it in their issues). Otherwise includes all other parts, decals and instructions.

The Tugboat parts are still in the factory sealed bags and includes instructions but NOTE: missing all of the drive gear and motor. NOTE: Treat this as a static model only. Since Pyro originally designed this kit for water operation with their optional marine motor pack, this is a nice small cruiser for RC but you will need to provide all the parts for the conversion.

West Side Model Co No. 3 Heisler Brass Locomotive HOn3 Narrow Gauge, 1/87

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+


In rare, investment-grade condition inside and out, please read carefully. Beautiful, like-new condition brass narrow gauge locomotive, hand-built in Japan for West Side Models by the renown Nakamura Seimisu K.K. The original box is in amazing 'near mint+' condition and the model is still wrapped in the original plastic and all three pieces of the factory foam are intact and in 'good' condition. This one-owner model has always been carefully stored in the original box. Under 14x magnification I cannot see but the slightest wear on the wheels, so I would grade it as 'never run' although it was probably test run at Nakamura before shipping. I see no broken parts and no modifications; it looks factory-new. I have no narrow gauge track, so I am unable to test the locomotive, so it is sold "As Is." There is no paperwork present. Must be shipped insured.
